While extroverts feel energized by socializing, introverts can feel drained. If your child is older, she can excuse herself to a quieter part of the room or a different location such as the bathroom or outside. If she’s younger, she might not notice when she’s tapped out, so you’ll have to watch her for signs of fatigue. Praise your child when she takes a social risk. Let her know you admire what she did. Say something like, “Yesterday, I saw you talking to that new boy. I know that was hard for you, but I’m proud of what you did.” Point out when she ends up enjoying something she was initially afraid of. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Dori Bowles New You 2021-10-15T19:34:45+01:00Added an answer on October 15, 2021 at 7:34 pm Help your child cultivate her passions, your child may have intense—and maybe even unique interests. Give her opportunities to pursue those interests. Intense engagement in an activity can bring happiness, well-being, and confidence, but it also gives your child opportunities to socialize with other children who have similar passions. Talk to your child’s teacher about their introversion. This will help your child’s teachers know how to interpret her behavior. Some teachers mistakenly assume that introverted children don’t speak up much in class because they’re disinterested or not paying attention. On the contrary, introverted students can be quite attentive in class, but they often prefer to listen and observe rather than actively participate. Also, if the teacher knows about your child’s introversion, the teacher may be able to gently help her navigate things like interactions with friends, participation in group work, or presenting in class. Teach your child to stand up for herself, teach her to say stop or no in a loud voice when another child tries to take her toy from her. If she’s being bullied or treated unfairly at school, encourage her to speak up to an adult or the perpetrator. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
